POSTPONED: Epistemic Virtues of Writing — Master Class with Yuri Herrera

The Poetry Project has presently suspended all live events due to COVID-19. We will be offering full refunds for any impacted events, and will also work to reschedule as needed.

In this Master Class, participants will explore estrangement and decentering as epistemic virtues of writing. Through writing exercises like inventing new prefixes and suffixes and devising alternative taxonomies, participants will experiment with tools to both create the sensation of strangeness before reality and before language, and to conceive the possibility of telling a story from a “marginal” starting point.
